  • KEN IN TEXAS
    replied
    My name is Ken Aggen. I bought a new 1960 Lark VIII Hardtop from Mount Greenwood Motors on Chicago's SW side when I was 20. Location was on south Kedzie Ave. This was after Al Payne motors located on 111th street closed and sold the Studebaker dealership to George Shumsky and his brother Mike.
    My father was a Studebaker Truck Salesman for Al Payne motors. For lack of space at Al Payne Motors his new Truck and Car inventory was stored Our Aggen Farm at 3837 West111th St in the early 50s. What great fun it was at age 10 to 15 to watch new cars being unloaded down the ramps off ARCO auto carrier transports in our farm yard.
    I will never forget my first test drive in a new Avanti at Mount Greenwood. What a Trip that was going south on Kedzie just past the city limits where you could really get on it.
    I drove the wheels of my Lark in the 8 years I had it. Gave it to a friend when the wife and I and 3 little boys moved to Texas in 68. Wish I had one like it now to give it to my wife for our 54th wedding anniversary. Honeymooned to Florida in that sweet Oasis Green Lark in April of 62.
    One nice thing about Mount Greenwood Motors is they were a RACE PERFORMANCE Dealership that built and maintained Studebaker 1/4 mile stock cars for driver Bill Van Allen. My clutch went to slippin and George built me a pressure plate using Model A Ford valve springs. My little wife had a tough time pushing in the clutch after that but it never ever slipped again.
    I and someone else posted some pictures of the Al Payne Motors Inventory at the Aggen Farm in 1950. Also some Pictures of Studes our Family owned.

    After contacting Bob Torvick I can confirm that He purchased Auto Mart in 1963 and was then a Studebaker dealer. He didn't have any frames on hand though !

    Harold Nelson sold Studebakers in the town of Tekamah, Nebraska, in the 40s and 50s. Building is unchanged and is a NAPA auto parts store. When he passed, at the auction was his 49 pickup and 51 Commander, both garage kept. I was a teenager and didn't have any money.

    Brad,
    Thanks for the plug and yes, most of the online sources for information have been pretty well exhausted. My research limit was reached when the Newspaper sources wanted a subscription fee. We already have an Ancestry.com account which has a wealth of info and is still being used. It's always been a mainstay of the project to rely on information offered by others like Bob Kapteyn and and the contributions are noted in the listings. Last year, Richard Quinn forwarded 30 pages of single spaced dealer names, which are being worked on. The Museum probably has information, but it would be for sale.......weh..wah..tilt!. Sooner or later, the info will be found, but on a slower time frame. Remember this adage? ..... "the Oxen are slow, but the Earth is patient".
    Newspaper searches produce lots of great information. Most can be joined on a monthly basis for a small fee. I have been researching Sheppard's Studebaker Sales in Cincinnati and have been able to come up with more than 125 articles and advertising pieces. Unbelievable stuff I have found for my effort.

    I don't think so, that wagon has a sloped forward Rear "D" Pillar that is thin, not wide like a Wagonaire and not a Stude. Roof Rack, it looks smaller and lower also.

I know my 64 wagonaire was delivered to Santa Rosa and was trying to find the name of the dealer that would have sold the car. I wanted to see if I could locate a pair of license plate frames ! I guess the cars in the picture next to the fence are from the VW dealer, but the 4th car in the pic is a wagonaire that is a dark color just like mine.

    Looks like it is Studebaker, Volvo, Mercedes, and maybe it was called Torvick at a Later time, (1964) as there is a Torvick Used Car Lot full of Studes. next to it.

    And it does look like the same Dealer in Santa Rosa, but maybe a different Time.
